Dropping Multiple "Documents" On To A Single Dock Item
« on: April 17, 2011, 12:32:13 AM »
I use some applications which are able to open multiple "documents" that are simultaneously dropped on to their corresponding executables [1].  I haven't succeeded in getting LBC dock items to work this way though - although dropping a single document does seem to work as expected.  Is it already possible?


[1] Some example applications: ReNamer, VirusTotalUpload2, Audacity, WinMerge, GIMP, Notepad++

there is no current way to do it, but it could be added pretty easily.  a question is -- how do these apps want multiple files to be specified? as additional commandline arguments?

Thanks.  Sounds promising :)

I believe so -- for the applications listed in the OP, I think it's just:

exename filename1 filename2 ... filenamen

It would also be nice to be able to work with things like HashMyFiles, where what's necessary is:

exename /files filename1 filename2 ... filenamen

Hi,
I have the same question.
Is this implemented meanwhile? If yes: HowTo?  (could not find it in help).
If no: Could it be done? Would be great!
